    Social Media

    Not got a profile for Twitter, pusbook, instagram or any of the other social media groups that exist but I often nosy at the DUFC twitter for updates at the club.
    Just perplexed at the comments aimed at Jamie Robson having signed a new deal. I like many others would have been quite happy if he were released as his performances last season in general were poor. However the "venom" of some of the comments towards the lad are ridiculous in my opinion. Stuff about not renewing season ticket, relegation, popstar etc just too much over a 20 year old lad signing a new deal. Hate the whole self obsessed, narcissistic, pretentious hate culture that exists on these sites.
    Anyway hoping Robson makes the most of his 2nd chance and plays a lot, lot better than he did last season. I don't think he is much of a player, but he is very young and with the right teammates could see a big improvement.

    For Souttar it was that he apparently tried to play too much.

    For Fraser it was that he apparently played too much with his hair.

    With Robson it's that he apparently thinks he's brilliant.

    It now seems that if you're an academy graduate you are to be targeted more and more.

    Young lads FFS. Some of the relentless pressure put on teenagers at our club is put of this world.

    I follow United on FB and Twitter, the social media platforms allow trolls, funsters, Huns and others to say what they want often spouting bile and vitriol. A bit like this forum really! I think Robson will do well with the right mentor.

    I would have Souttar back at the club in a heartbeat and will be gutted when Fraser officially leaves.
    The young players get plenty of support early doors but when they develop any kind of flaw they get lambasted. Who in their late teens, early twenties didn't pose a bit, have a bit of an attitude or do a few daft things?
    They aren't robots and I agree too much pressure is put on them.

    Agreed mate. Would probably not hear a cheep out of them in person, enjoy being nice and covert behind their keyboard.

    I agree too much pressure put on the young lads. They are asked to shoulder a lot at the club at the moment. Not many young lads can play every week and do well. A lot to take with the abuse on social media added in

    I really like Fraser and face to face with his detractors in the stand i have stuck up for him,there was one guy in front of me who gave him a hammering everytime he touched the ball during a match and i finally told him to shut up.To be fair to Fraser he came up trumps by scoring a few minutes later.
    His most annoying trait by far was to adjust his hair when dispossessed instead of tracking the player who had robbed him of the ball.

    It's embarrassing, phuckin imbeciles

    Goodie was a poser when he first broke through and never got that type of abuse despite not doing much early on, don't remember the same bitterness towards our own youth products back then

    Robson was poor last season but is young, all is not lost yet

    Fraser, ridiculous the criticism he received, very good player

    Just a by-product of the vein of poison that sees us supporting a championship side!

    Fraser is easily our most talented player. Sad to see him go. Thought him being a United fan he would resign. Obviously has had enough and will be a cracking player with the right manager and playing with better players. Under Levein at Hearts .

    United Pus Jotter page says Fraser is away. On his game he was excellent and hope he goes on to be the player he always promised to be.

    I feel sorry for Robson, his friends and family who have had to see all the stuff over social media. At the end of the day he’s a young lad, making a living. He’s done stupid things off the park and he had a very poor season last year. A good player would use this to prove everybody wrong and a competent manger would highlight this to him. Big test of Robsons character and Csaba’s management skills now.

    Not too entralled at Robson staying thought shabba would have done better but aint going to go ott.

    Maybe the fact that fraser left with a very nice thank you to club. An arab and he never mentioned the fans but the club and managers etc.

    Says a lot. Sad and not sure if he meant it. We do expect too much from younger kids.

    Angry manchildren abusing young men trying to get on with their carers. It's pathetic really.

    It's a really weird side of humanity that's only been allowed to be shown through the rise of technology and, particularly it seems, social media. Things get said that would never be used in a face to face context. This is compounded by the fact statements linger for all to see.

    I know its a serious subject....... but I had to laugh at the wee spelling mistake. Dont know if its the angry manchildren or the abused young men that need carers.

    A constant theme in our society now, no just in the fitba world.

    A platform for the insignificant and unstable, nasty and angry to spout bile.

    Will never change now unless there is more enforcement. Nae chance.

    Been wrong before (aye) but when I first joined United Mad I really don't remember the number of different players getting the amount of abuse they get on here. CCFS springs to mind maybe but I don't remember too many getting the kind of criticism they seem to get now.
    Maybe we had better players but I don't think it's just that tbh.
    When young players especially go onto sites like this and read that stuff it's not going to strengthen the bond between players and the fans on the terraces.
    But people have a right to slag off players on sites like this, sure they do so i suppose its here to stay.
